“A Magical Retreat in the Rainforest”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

We stayed at Lotus Garden (in the Aloha Moon Cottage) for 2 nights this October while exploring the national park nearby. John was a gracious host, quick with a dinner recommendation or idea to enhance our sightseeing.

The property is just the right amount of cozy without being pretentious. You'll appreciate the fireplace at the return of a damp, cold day exploring the area. As well, the privacy (separate entrances, separate balconies) is ideal for making you feel wonderfully out of the way.

Breakfast was delicious and full of choices--from the standard pastry and fruit choice to a hearty breakfast sandwich.

Room Tip: The Aloha Moon is excellent--big, warm bed and a fireplace.

We stayed at the the Lotus Garden Cottages in September and our only regret was that we were there only one night. The cottages are lovey, nestled in the arms of a tropical Hawaiian rainforest of giant ferns and other plants. The rooms are very spacious and extremely comfortable with an Asian motif. In the morning we were served a delicious breakfast of fruits and pastries right in our room - actually at our hosts' suggestion we ate on the balcony right outside our room.

We will definitely return to the Lotus Garden Cottages on our next trip, and definitely stay several nights.

Wonderful place to relax and be centrally located for activities. The breakfasts were delicious every morning and offered a nice variety of local, fresh fruit and breads. All four of us loved our accommodations and the privacy of each room. We would definitely stay there again.

The most relaxing part of our stay in Hawaii was definitely at the Lotus Garden Cottages. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about the place. The cottages are nestled in the rain forest and surrounded by lush tropical foliage. There are flowering plants and vines everywhere and the sounds of running water in the fountain near the main office are really relaxing.

Each morning John brought breakfast to our door at 8 and it was such a great way to start the day! There were always yummy pastries and the most delicious local fruits. It was the perfect breakfast for two! On chilly mornings we sat beside the fire to eat and it was so cozy.

The location of the cottages is perfect. You are just a couple minutes from the Volcanoes National Park and local restaurants. This was our favorite place in all of Hawaii.

Room Tip: We only saw the two cottages, and they were equally wonderful

We loved this B & B! Set in the middle of the rainforest and decorated with perfect oriental details. It was very quite and comfortable. The Kureg machine was ready with hot coffee or tea first thing in the morning and at the requested time the owners brought breakfast to your suite which we chose to eat on the outdoor balcony. The room wasn't large but it had everything you needed including an oriental gas fireplace, a desk, comfy chairs, and even reading lights over the bed. We would definitely stay here again.

We spent two nites in the Korean themed room. The location was great - just a few minutes from Volanco NP. The view and sound of the rainforest was so tranquil, especially since we live in the desert. The room was beautifully appointed and very comfortble. I appreciated the attention to detail that included reading lamps, hooks and light in the closet - something I rarely see. The Kims are gracious hosts that made us feel welcome. The fresh fruit made breakfast a treat. The gas fireplace kept us toasty warm while creating a cozy environment. I wouldn't hesitate to return to or recommend a visit to Lotus Gardens.

We loved this cozy little cottage but sad we only stayed for one night. The room was very clean and it had everything you need. The bed was sooo comfortable that we didn't want to get up the next morning. And you can't complain about the view of the rainforest from your window or balcony. It was wonderful to have our breakfast brought out to us in the morning and Mrs. Kim even stopped by to see us off and say thank you for staying with them. Overall a wonderful little place to stay.
